We’ve been anticipating the arrival of Brave, the new Disney Pixar animated film, since earlier this year. Tomorrow evening, it’s the European Premiere as the closing event of the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Since we heard that Visit Scotland was encouraging Scottish Tourism businesses to find ways to create a tie-in with the film, we’ve been wondering how best to achieve this from our base as a holiday cottage in the middle of Edinburgh. Aside from donning a Merida wig and offering our visitors a warm welcome when they arrive, what should we do?
Last week at the Royal Highland Show we noticed that Bartlett’s foods were offering an opportunity to visitors to their stand to try their hand at some target practice with toy crossbows and longbows, and our son was eager to have a try.
We’re heading to the premiere tomorrow night to find out what its all about – maybe this will spark some ideas for a tie-in. In the meantime, the film goes on general release here on 3 August 2012 (revised date). As Craigwell Cottage is just a short walk from the Edinburgh OMNI Centre our guests will be able to stroll over there to see it.
PS – we really enjoyed the film!
